A question about EARL.

I am working on a project where accessibility audits (through 
crowdsourcing and through other more formal évaluations and validations) 
will be done for buildings (commerces, public spaces, etc.) and than 
added to a web site where people can interrogate the database for 
accessible venues according to various criteria. There will be a sexy 
map and also other ways of visualising the data through more accessible 
means. We are in the initial phases where we have built a data model in 
xml format and are exploring whether to use OSM (though even if we do 
not use OSM, will probably share the data) or some other platform and 
looking for something accessible has not been easy but that is another 
discussion. Anyway, I was thinking of EARL for the audit results since, 
in theory, EARL can be used for any kind of tests, not just Web audits. 
I have not looked at EARL in a while and wonder where things are. Also, 
can not remember if the format is a simple pass/fail expression or if 
you can also add info about the results of the test.

Any info or other useful suggestions would be appreciated.
